I needed to pick up some fruit this week for a morning birthday party at the office and I wanted to ride my bike. I mapped out a route past the nearest grocery store (thankfully we have many) and backed out a little extra time in my morning. Things went smoothly until I loaded a bag of oranges and a bunch of bananas into my pannier. And the bike fell over.
Do you have any idea how much fruit weighs?
(hint: it’s heavy)
It made me wonder how my eating habits would change if I had to buy my family’s food this way all the time. We’d probably eat less, shop more.
But we might just switch to dried fruit.
